one of my colleagues told how he was poisoning ants at his “dacha”. i said:
— i’ve read a story about it by Levon Khechoian.
— who is he?
— he recently died, i guess he grown up in the village. he was writing sometimes mystic stories, very often about cruelty, and i believe he has a line about betrayal in almost every his work.
— well, I don’t consider killing ants as a cruelty. — he said.
— yes, when I was a child, we were killing a lot of them. i was doing carpet bombings, used burning plastic bottles, bulldozed their anthills with my feet, and was making crystal coffins. do you know what’s that?
— when you put a glass over ant and hit it with the rock.
here chief said:
— well, as we can see, memory about medieval inquisition is still alive.
— yes, — he said proudly, — I was probably one of them in my former lives.
needless to say, he also adores and respects Putin and Stalin, he’s homophobic, and he’s a sexist. Exactly as RAW wrote.
